Red Bull Ride and Style 2013 Event Update

Red Bull Ride and Style

SAN FRANCISCO, CA- May 4th 2013, The Annual Red Bull Ride and Style will be held at Justin Herman plaza.  This has traditionally been an awesome event because it brings together awesome street artists for course design and some of the best riders in fixed gear biking.  Word on the street is that the course is full of treachery as some of the inspiration has been borrowed from X-Games Rallycross.  Jason Clary mentioned that he is going to be using a hybrid between a trick bike and a race bike to navigate his way through the course.

Anyhow, we’ll be out there supporting our favorite riders and chillin’ with the homies.  Roll out and enjoy a weekend shredding bikes with us.  Hit us up on Twitter or Instagram and don’t forget to bring your Boombot!

Red Bull Kluge – Complex machine powered by world renowned action sport athletes

Amazing video of world-class athletes combining physical skills with physics

Got six minutes to spare? Good — you’re going to love this.

And these aren’t your run-of-the-mill athletes we’re talking about going through this real-life mousetrap — these are global names. Lolo Jones, Ryan Scheckler, and more.

The whole thing was created by Adam Sadowsky of Syyn labs. The final numbers: 100 workers were used to build the course, which took 17 days and approximately 25 tons of material. There’s something going on at every level, whether it’s weights falling, bowling balls rolling, chainsaws hacking, or athletes stunting, like on of our awesomely loud portable speakers, the video’s entertaining from start to end.

Can you imagine how nuts you’ve got to be to skate downhill in a race course that’s almost like a bobsleighed track … but with bumps!  Pretty nuts indeed, but the cool part is that there were 244 guys that decided to live on the edge and participate in this year’s event.  As always, there were some wicked crashes and rad stunts!

Let’s go over some of his stats: he’s jumped — approximately speaking — 2,500 times from various planes and helicopters. He’s also done a ton of BASE jumping from some of the highest landmarks and skyscrapers in the world, including the Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking Rio de Janeiro and the Taipei 101 in Taiwan.
